I thought that draft_from couldn't be enabled in a .mh_profile so that th

just defaulting masquerade to be enabled instead of disabled? 

In this day and age, isn't that an impossible mission? After all, we have 
usespace (nmh or other) process doing smtp towars the smtp server. Any such
check should, imo, be on the server side. Nothing's stopping the user from 
telnetting to port 25 and try to send the mail with whatever envelope he 
wants anyway.

It's always been that way.  I think that we should retain the
original nmh capability, just change the default build configuration.

Speaking of ports, wny way to use other ports than 25? I'm occationally 
sitting behind an intricate mess^Dh of ssh tunnels...

It looks like it's hard-coded ("smtp") in mts/smtp/smtp.c.

With more and more ISPs blocking outbound 25, should we add code to try to
use port 587 (submission) first, and fallback to 25?
